It is one of those evenings that you just can't sleep. I have not written about life lately, blog. I have been caught up with my career, I guess. Sometimes things seem to stagnate, but everything rights itself in the end? Right? Right!

You know, I did end up buying a charcoal grill. Unfortunately, it's only for Maine. So I haven't had a chance to give 'er a go.

I ended up watching the "Friends" DVDs Hannah got me for my birthday. That Chandler sure is crazy! That show was good times. Too bad all things come to an end. I guess I'm just getting retrospective in my age. Oh well!

I'm going to go drink warm milk and try to get some shut eye.

Hi Tom,
I have fond memories of you in Hawaii. Thanks for being so kind,..if this is really you. I never forgot you talking to me every time we crossed paths. It was fun,cos I never knew where you were going to be,and I was always running into you guys filming. I still have the photos of you coming out of the trailer,and with the Farrarri. Well,if this is you,I hope to hear from you sometime. I sent you an email earlier.
Take care,
Shiloh

Your handsome smiling face always makes me happy. I have loved to watch you since I first saw you in Magnum P.I. I always get a tweak in my stomach when I see you,even after all these years. Keep on smiling and bringing us girls something to look forward to. You are my man to "drool over" that my husband can't complain about. Lola

Dear Mr. Selleck,
As a USMC veteran who served as an infantry squad leader with the Marine Corps 3rd Division in Vietnam during the year of 1968, I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the way that yourself and co-stars portrayed us in "Magnum PI". Most others in the entertainment industry were pretty tough on us.
Also hoped that you might assist in a film venture begun by me in 1981. It's entitled * GRUNTS * and, yes, the scenario concerns Vietnam. And touches more on the human, and even humorous, side of those who served our infantry at the time. And emphasis is also placed on the wonderful ladies (Nurses, Red Cross & USO) who also did their share of tours in RVN.
An attempt was made by me to produce the motion picture and succeeded in attracting Hannah Weinstein for distribution and a senior producer at Columbia, Larry Wilcox, who signed on to play a lead (Can prove it), the Marine Corps for Department Od Defense (DOD) which also can be proved and Alan Wilson of The Completion Bond Company.
Sadly, Hannah Weinstein passed on as the project was heading toward conclusion. Distribution went out the window. Sader, though, was her loss.
Anyway, and to make a long story a bit longer, my eldest son recently found a copy of the screenplay in the family archives and I thought, what the heck. I jumped on the Long Island Railroad (I live in Hicksville (Yes, a town with a name like that does exist...), treked into NYC and re-registered the script with the Writer's Guild. And here I am...
With thought in mind of all those great hours enjoying episodes of "Magnum PI", and with prodding from my two sons, your name came up. I had literally insisted they watch so as not to believe all that other stuff that was depicting those of us who fought in not so favorable a light. Stuff that was also an affront to the spirit of their uncle, Gregg Lavery, also USMC, who died in a fire-fight near Qua Viet in March of 1968. He was a great friend and paying condolence to his family upon my return was how I met my wife.
Hope you might come on board as Executive Producer, a major role player, co-writer (I'm sure the script could use a bit of spiffing up)or within any other capacity of which might fit into your schedule. Your envolvement would certainly enhance and, no doubt, ensure the ventures success.
THANKS again for being a friend to those of us who served in RVN.
Sincere regards

PS This is a bit off topic, but with further thought of your service with the National Guard and subsequent involvement with the Watts riots, I hope you go to the "ASK" search engine and type in the key words, Mike Regan, TSBD (Texas School Book Depository). Feeling very strongly that the riot, and other violent events taking place around the country at the time (And since), are very much linked to the violent act which took place on that tragic day in Dallas on November in 1963, I've shared my research, and conclusion, as to what I feel, again quite strongly,what actually went down in Dealey Plaza that day.
Hopefully, once again, you will find the material of interest.
THANKS again...

WHEN are you going to get online again to check your messages?! (Ha!) It's great to see you in the Jesse Stone role...it suits you very well! Great writing, by the way! Yes, it is sad 'all good things must come to an end'...speaking of which, this is Rebecca (aka 'Becky'), "Uncle Tom". I sent you a message some time ago on here. Just remember, like good wine...WE only get BETTER with age! (Ha!)
